So I should receive a 2.5w Eleks maker Chinese engraver soon, it seems to be based on a Arduino nano.
I want to be able to use PWM on the laser to get 8-bit shading and better engravings.

Will this be the correct procedure for setting it up with 3dpburner:

1. change jumper under the board from 8 to 9
2. flash custom grbl firmware (sketch_apr15a.cpp.hex) using Xloader
3. use 3dpBurner Image2Gcode program to import images and settings
4. use 3dpBurnerSender to send code to machine for engraving.
